Concannon Vineyard Petite Sirah Livermore Valley 2005
Balanced with lush, ripe berries and spicy dark chocolate. Fine, fruit flavors have many layers, and are complexed by some barrel age characters and sometimes some earthy notes, complexity and a lingering, silky finish. The Reserve Petite can be aged to perfection in 5-7 years or enjoyed now. Pair with Steak Au Poivre, eggplant with black olive pesto or pumpkin ravioli with sage and toasted hazelnuts.Platnum Award Los Angeles International, vintage 2005Concannons Petite Sirahs are wonderfully rich - Decanter Magazine
Nice. Not wildly memorable, but it definitely got an "mmm" when I first tried it. Reminded me of why I like Petite Sirah: the nice balance of spice and berries.
Great value Petite Sirah. Fruity with spice, medium very nice finish.
Wow. Impressive PS...great QPR. Earthy, great fruit, just a phenomenal quaff at $10.
served with friends over, we all really like this. Nice long finish, berry flavors, soft tannins, a bit of spice
Bright berry with light pepper and charcoal notes. Dry, medium/full bodied, well structured with moderate complexity, zin-like flavours and a touch of vanilla. This dry yet well rounded version is more of a food wine than the more vibrant Bogle petite sirah. Has a satisfying finish. Very decent value at $19.99Cdn, .
A long standing favorite, a mouth-filling, assertive flavor with spices and tannins that is also smooth in finish and aftertaste. A strong Petite Sirah bettered only by Foppiano in my experience.

External Reviews for Concannon Vineyard Petite Sirah Livermore Valley
Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 87Heres a rich, balanced Petite Sirah with a lot going for it. Full-bodied and dry, its enormously deep in red and black currant, dark chocolate and anise flavors, with considerable tannins. Easy to find, with 55,000 cases produced, and a great example of why Petite Sirah is such a hot variety.Wine Tasting NotesOur Limited Release Petite Sirah is an intense wine with vibrant berry fruits and a rich, full palate. The wine starts with attractive aromas of ripe berries, creamy oak and a touch of spice. This Petite Sirah is full bodied, yet it has a firm and balanced structure with hints of toasty oak and vanilla on the palate. Theres plenty to sink your teeth into now as the finish is quite lasting and memorable. Enjoy now through 2012. Enjoy with wild game, teriyaki beef, herb-rubbed lamb or decedent dark chocolate.
